Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This one-of-a-kind resource covers both basic and clinical sciences for psychiatrists and psychiatry residents preparing for Part 1 of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Examination in Psychiatry. The American Psychiatric Publishing Board Prep and Review Guide for Psychiatry is a single text focusing exclusively on the examination's psychiatry topics, providing an organized and understandable review of material that the user presumably will have mastered but offering a practical means of reviewing that material and minimizing the need to consult multiple sources. It's an authoritative work that can be used with confidence, drawing on the latest editions of the APPI Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry, the APPI Textbook of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences, and their Essentials editions.

The editors have provided a sufficiently detailed overview so that the book can serve as a primary source for psychiatry candidates. They have maintained a balance between succinctness and comprehensiveness while providing the proper emphasis on critical topics for study. The contents are arranged by topic to conform to coverage in the Examination. The first eleven chapters review basic sciences for psychiatric practice-functional neuropathology, genetics, immunology, and more-as well as such subjects as psychological assessment, cultural psychiatry, and legal issues. Subsequent chapters address the entire gamut of clinical syndromes along categories consistent with DSM-IV-TR classification, from cognitive disorders to anxiety to personality disorders, accompanied by chapters on the psychiatric interview, diagnostics, psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and pain disorders. Among the guide's practical features: A single chapter on psychopharmacology addresses drug therapy applicable to the disorders covered in the syndrome chapters Quick-reference tables summarize diagnostic criteria for specific psychiatric disorders Multiple-choice questions-derived from the APPI Study Guide to Clinical Psychiatry and Study Guide to Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences-appear at the end of each chapter, with annotated answers provided at the back of the book

With board certification more important now than ever, this review guide can help candidates approach their Part 1 Examination with greater confidence. It is also ideal for psychiatry residents who wish to prepare for the PRITE, or for psychiatrists in other countries facing similar examinations.

Book News Annotation:

A preparation guide for Part I of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) examination. Most of the 36 chapters address a specific clinical syndrome category according to DSM-IV-TR classification, reviewing the disorder's epidemiology, differential diagnosis, etiology, course, and treatment options. The opening chapters describe normal child and adolescent development, genetics, immunology, endocrinology, psychological assessment techniques, and legal issues. A few study questions are provided at the end of each chapter. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
